3D Mammography™ in Ellenville
ELLENVILLE, NY — Ellenville Regional Hospital will soon be offering Genius™ 3DMammography™ exams, developed by Hologic, Inc. Using advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing. In addition, compression time is reduced to under four seconds.
In conventional two-dimensional mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. A Genius exam includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.
To schedule a Genius 3D Mammography™ exam, or for more information, call 845/647-6400, ext. 271.
